GM Donates Diesel Trucks to Tri-C Auto Tech Training Program
Five new vehicles allow GM ASEP students to train on the latest technology
General Motors recently donated $223,000 in diesel trucks for use as learning tools in the General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (GM ASEP) at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The donation allows students to train on vehicles featuring the latest in diesel, electronic and safety technology. The College received three Chevrolet Silverados and two GMC Sierras.
“Hands-on training is the backbone of GM ASEP,” said Kitty McCarthy, director of Tri-C’s Automotive Technology program. “This generous donation from General Motors allows our students to build the skills they need to succeed in this industry.”
GM ASEP students at Tri-C alternate between classroom training and paid internships at a sponsoring GM dealership or ACDelco Professional Service Center. This combination of school and work experience reinforces the technical knowledge required for a career in the field.
Upon graduation, students typically leave campus with an Associate of Applied Science degree and a full-time job offer as a specialized service technician.
The new trucks join a collection of more than 30 vehicles available for GM ASEP classes at the College. The program is run out of Tri-C’s Advanced Automotive Technology Center at Western Campus.
